Natalie Wadlington is a painter originally from Modesto, California. She received her BFA from California State University, Stanislaus in 2017, and will be receiving her MFA in painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in May of 2020.
She was a resident fellow at Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist Residency in 2019, has had her work featured in publications such as New American Paintings, and has shown her work both virtually and physically throughout the country.
Her practice consists of paintings based in story-telling and figuration. She sees them as specific metaphors which communicate larger, archetypal narratives of love, conflict, and misunderstanding, specifically in our relationship to animals.
